I recently had 12mm plywood and 15mm Oak tongue and groove floorboards installed in my home.
This went over white tiles - so the plywood drilled into the tiles.
Its been 2 months and the floors are squeaking – which is not common for these floorings as they are glued down – assuming it would be the plywood rubbing.
Do all Timber floor installers carry a 7 year warranty by law?
If so, has anyone experienced this before and how easy is it to pull up oak boards to re fix the plywood underneath?
Any help or advice would be great

I don't think tradesman or companies should be installing flooring over tiles, that's just my opinion.
Can you check your quote or invoice if there is any mention of warranty?
The flooring can be repaired, it's a bit messy and fiddly but possible

Ok, maybe gather all the information regarding your problem and ring the person or company and see what they say, get them onsite to inspect.
If that fails, maybe take it to the next level and write something formal with notice you will be taking the matter higher up to the authority who controls and oversees building work in your state and see what happens from that.
Or you wipe your hands of whoever installed the flooring and get it repaired by someone else and hope that everywhere else will be ok

I had a play just before with the ground floor but I just have the demo version. Can you draw over your existing plans if you pay for the upgraded version? This is what…

Hi What do you recommend for sealing concrete for new jarrah floorboards. Polyethylene sheet or liquid sealer which dries upon application. If latter, which brand.
